BAY, LAKE t.L(
For those who are deciding whether to
go to Silver Bay this summer or not, the
following retrospect of last summer's con-
vention may be of interest.
Only two of us started out from Welles-
ley on the Friday morning train for Alba-
ny, for most of the Silver Bay pilgrims
were already there. Other late comers
gradually collected as the morning wore
on, so that by the time we had passed
through the beautiful Bcrkshires and
drew into Albany at noon, there was a
goodly number of us. We had just time
for sandwiches and coffee there before
we were off again on our way to Lake
George. Somehow we all managed to
get acquainted without much difficulty;
for one of the Smith girls was sure that
she had met one of our number last year,
and the Holyoke girls thought it very
probable that one of them might happen
to know one of us, and if they were mis-
taken, why it was only anticipating mat-
ters a bit, so what was the difference?
Long before Lake George came in view,
we had all found mutual friends or mutual
ideas, or at least a mutual purpose in
coming to Silver Bay, and were all good
friends, for all college girls have much in
The last few miles of the way we hud-
dled around the windows, each trying to
get a first view of the lake. The country
grew more and more hilly; great rocks
and thick pine groves grew more frequent,
and then the train swept around a final
curve and there was Lake George.
The twenty-five mile ride up the lake
was pure joy. The sun was well toward
the west when we boarded the big lake
steamer, and we watched it sink lower
and lower over the hills as we cut through
the green water, leaving mile after mile
behind us. Past hotels, fine cottages and
rustic camps we went At times the nar-
row lake closed in so that there seemed
no outlet, but always a hidden channel
opened up. The sunlight on the mountains
grew gold. the. shadows of the tall pines
and birches lengthened, and then we
passed behind an island and there was
only the glow in the sky left and the
waters were no longer blue and green,
but dark gray. At dusk, around the last
point we swept and the first stars shorie
out as we turned into Silver Bay.
They were all at the pier to meet us,
hundreds of them, all smiling and welcom-
ing and cheering and singing. Familiar
faces appeared, our suit cases were seized,
and we hurried up to the hotel to supper.
"We are to have Overlook with Smith!"
everyone was joyously calling, and when
we saw it we were joyful too. It was a
very long, very low log building high on
the hillside, looking right over the hotel
roof to the big, quiet mountains across
the lake. The first meeting came that
night, and, though every one who was
tired stayed at home, the big hall was
crowded and the cottage showed few
lights. How everybody sang! and hew
happy sounded that great voice of the
We all strolled back arm in arm to
Overlook, and just before we went to bed
we sat in a circle on the long verandah
and talked things over. Perhaps it was
the calm of the cool, sweet air and 1he
moonlight across the water; perhaps the
quiet strength of the mountains all about
us, or perhaps it was iust the atmosphere
of Silver Bay that did it. but somehow
everything seemed simple and straight-
forward that night. It seemed natural to
be talking our problems over together,
and a new and lasting comradeship came
into being as we talked. We left Silver
Bav after ten of those bedtime talks out
under the stars, with a feeling that we
had grown stronger and our problems
weaker. And it is a feeling that does not
go, but comes again all through the vear
at the memory of those nights. That
was the atmosphere which we carried
away with us. the calm, the quiet strength
and clear-seeing which tries and fails and
I wish I could tell in detail about the
meetings. The last word of advice given
to us before we left was, " Don't trv to
go to all the meetings." But what could
one leave out? There were fewer meet-
ings than usual last summer. They came
only in the morning and evening. In the
afternoons we read and talked and studied,
had interviews with the leader and olaved.
In short we did just what we liked, and
the meetings were above all things prac-
tical The normal school mission studv
classes came first. In these we took a
sample country and learned different
methods of teaching mission studv classes,
incidentally gleaning information about
the country. Then came the alumna? and
student meetings. We learned the differ-
ent schemes of different colleges for ac-
complishing the work of the different
Christian Association Committees, taking
one or two committees a day. These
meetings were too interesting to think of
omitting. Then we had a choice of va-
rious Bible study classes. The amount of
ground covered in ten days' time in each
course was wonderful, hut particularly so
in the Bible classes. We ended the course

Spring housecleaning has attacked
ley in a particularly thorough form.
With the dusting of bird glasses and
the reappearance of "spring fever," the
garrel has been overhauled for old consti-
tutions which have fallen behind the
fashions, and brushing away of moth-
eaten sections and general furbishing of
by-laws has been begun. It is a good thing
to have all our machinery in working or-
der, and nothing is a greater hindrance to
progression than rules which no longer
have significance or effect.
It is a sensible girl who saves herself.

herself to be drawn into the many interests
which claim the attention at present.
We are coming to our most delightful
term and to our busiest term as well, and
tired as we arc with the winter and the
midyear work, we shall be taking the pari
of wisdom if we get a little more delight
and a little less business from the three
months and a half remaining frcm this
year. It is a course not so selfish as it
would seem, for are jaded, neurasthenic

cular to pay special attention to the health

subject given in so enthusiastic a way
that we could not resist the determination
to do daily Bible study by ourselves.
The last meeting of the morning was a
missionary meeting. These dealt with
home as well as foreign missions. We
heard about the George Junior Republic
and the various movements in behalf of
our working girls and of many other in-
teresting organizations of our own land.
After lunch we went off on long explor-
ing expeditions in row-boats. We went
in swimming, we played tennis and climbed
the mountains. In the evening we sang
college songs on the pier in the twilight

We all know the inspiration of listening
to Mr. Mott and Mr. Speer, for we have
often listened to them here at college.

happy we were in having Miss Hazard
with us at Silver Bay over Sunday. The
real joys of Silver Bay, the lasting inspira-
tion we found there, the deeper knowledge
of ourselves and our fellows, and above
all the peace and strength of simple, happy
living, can never get to he old stories to
us, but must always remain fresh and
true and lasting, while we remember

It will be of interest to quote from a review by Professor Dick-
son of London, in a recent number of the English scientific period-
ical, "Nature," which is a comparison of two newly-published
investigations, one, "Fecundation of Plants" by the Botanist
Mottier; the other, "Contributions to the Life-History of Pinus"
by Prof. Margaret C. Ferguson. The review technically dis-
cusses the papers, particularly the latter, in its departure from
old conclusions, as formative contributions to cytology. In
closing Professor Dickson says: "All cytologists are indebted
to the author for her beautiful drawings, which are reproduced
in a series of twenty-four plates. There is no doubt that the
publication of these two memoirs, the one by the Carnegie In-
stitution, and the other by the Washington Academy of Sciences,
will be of much service to those engaged in cytological research. "

READING FOR OLD SOLDIERS.
I quote the following passages from a letter written on the
Ides of March, of this year, by the Hon. W. P. Brownlow, Mana-
ger National Soldiers home at Johnson City, Washington County,
"Congress has, at various times, appropriated an aggregate of
$2,000,000 for the construction of a rvational Soldiers home at
Johnson City, Tenn. This plant has been under construction
tor three years and is now complete. The management began
the admission ot members about a year ago and to-day there are
1,000 inmates, and by May lirst, there win be 2,000. The home,
when tuM, win contain a population of 4,500 disabled volunteer
soldiers if the United States, who by reason ol disease and age
are unable to earn a living by manual labor.
"Congress does not provide either a library or books for these
Homes, nine of which now exist in the Lnited States; but the
Libraries have been tilled by books donated by patriotic citizens
throughout the country. Mr. Andrew Carnegie gave me $25,-
000 to construct a library building at this home. The library
building is now complete and without books, and has ample
room lor io.ooo volumes."
Colonel Brownlow asks for the donation of a few books, saying
that he can use ail kinds "as the membership of the Home con-
sists ol men who are graduates ol the best coneges of the country
as well as those who can scarcely read. " It is evident, however,
that paper-bound books would not be appropriate, nor any ot
shabby covers and flimsy contents, riistories, biographies,
poems, novels, collections 01 short stories, books ot science, popu-
lar or unpopular, essays, books ot spiritual significance, — all
these womd be acceptaoie.
Arrangements have been made for sending on our package
free of express charge. Any books left before the Easter vaca-
tion at the English Literature Oilice, Room 20, College Hall, —
where a book-case just within the door stands eager to receive
them, — will be caremlly packed and forwarded.
Remembering how liueraily the College responded to a similar
appeal made, two years ago, for a colony ol consumptives, it is
sate to express thanks in advance, but, by the grace of the Col-
lege News editors, I hope to renew the thanks in a report of
progress later on. Katharine Lee Bates.
A NOTABLE ALUMNA.
Miss Anna Foote Webb of the class of 1882 has achieved more
than falls to the lot of most v\ el.esley graduates. She was an en-
thusiastic student of history and becoming, during her senior
year, deeply interested in Spain, she determined to learn the
language and to make a first-hand study of the romantic land
beyond the Pyrenees as soon as opportunity should offer. After
several years of teaching there came in 1890 the chance to go to
Spain. Miss Webb found a congenial home and the means for
prosecuting her study of Spanish literature and history in the
international Institute, then located at San Sebastian. Her
interest in the school and its students there gathered, deepened
until she determined to make this her life work. \\ ith the ex-
ception of two winters spent with her parents in this country,
Miss Webb has devoted the past fifteen years to this work,
teaching History and Latin and growing wise as to the needs and
capacities of Spanish girls. Her exceptional experience and de-
votion rendered her manifestly the best person to take charge
of the school after Mrs. Gulick's death. A year ago Miss Webb
was appointed principal of the mission school conducted by the
Woman's Board. During these difficult first years at Madrid,
she has directed the work with untiring zeal, winning new friends
and adherents for this endeavor to bring opportunity for a liberal
education within reach of Spanish girls.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO SETTLEMENT WORK.
The head worker in the East Side House, New York City, has
written to our College Christian Association for help in securing
a resident helper for next year. This settlement is carried on by
the Young Women's Christian Association, and its work promises
so much opportunity that more workers are needed. The head
resident desires a young woman who is thoroughly interested in
this sort of work, — one who will be willing to give lour hours a
day at least, to clubs and settlement classes and one who can
pay her own board amounting to about five or six dollars a week.
This is an exceptional opportunity for service and one that
will appeal to the student of economic and Christian settlement
problems. Further information may be had from the President
of the Christian Association.
Then.' will be a mass meeting of students Wednesday after-
noon, at 4.15, March 22, in College Hall Chapel. Some of the
Faculty will speak to enlist sympathy for the cause of the So-
ciety of the Friends of Russian Freedom.
There are many opportunities given us to prove our devotion
to Wellesley; one may find constant chances to "answer to her
every call." And to those of us who have been to Silver Bay
there comes a new understanding of the possibilities in our
Y\ ellesley delegation for representing our College in the midst
of friendly Collegiate competition.
Surely when Vassar and Smith, Mt. Holyoke and Bryn Mawr
are sending each year to the Silver Bay conference their most at-
tractive, best intellectually equipped, strongest student leaders,
Vv ellesley longs too that she may not take a place of lower repre-
sentation. Shall our College stand before that large gathering
of three hundred preparatory school students, judged by an un-
representative delegation? Shall we allow our place of preemn-
nence among Eastern colleges to be undervalued by a gathering
rep'esenting eighty-seven different schools and colleges?
Surely when only fifty students can be sent from YV ellesley
this year shall not the girls who are urged to go, feci that this is
both an opportunity and an obligation given them by Weilesley
herself? E. J. S.
"Last week the class of gave a play called 'Freddie's Life'
at the Barn. The excellency of the cast was only to be rivalled
by the faithful work of the committee, etc. "
* How often we read it. In our rooms, in the halls, at the Barn,
we discuss the play freely and frankly, its iaults and its merits
and do not hesitate to award praise or blame, but in the columns
of the News, all work, good, bad, or indifferent, receives the same
meed of enthusiastic, indiscriminate praise. The play may be
saved from failure by the brilliant work of one girl but we learn
that "the performance of Saturday evening was especially note-
worthy for its even east." The hero may move with the ease
and grace of a wooden image but "his interpretation of the part
of Launcelot was charming."
From Freshman year we are trained in criticism of everything,
from "Sweetness and Light" to "King Lear" but, so far, no one
in College seems able or willing to write a fair and intelligent
criticism of a Barnswallow play.
Miss Heniy and the Tennessee Mountaineers.
Wednesday afternoon, at the Tau Zeta Epsilon House, Miss
Margaret E. Henry, of Maryville College, Tennessee, spoke of
the Settlement work that is being done among the Southern
Mountaineers, and told something of the history of 'Walker's
Valley" in the Smoke Mountains. There theee people have lived
since their emigration from the colonies; which, they felt, were
getting too worldly; in an isolation so complete that generation
after generation has grown up with absolutely no communication
with the outside world, no laws for the prevention of crime, no
books or schools, and not the most ordinary conception of the
amenities of life
These conditions seem the most discouraging possible for the
Settlement worker, but there is a corresponding encouragement
in the fact that the mountaineers are descendants of the best
Scotch-Irish stock of the colonies, and the children are not only
eager to learn, but have keen and receptive minds, with the
sturdy independence and pride of the mountain-born. It is
significant that it was through their own efforts that the first
school was started among these mountaineers of Walker's Val-
"Miss Hcnrv spoke with the simple convincing force and un-
failing appeal of those who have given up their lives in devotion
to a good cause, and as her talk was the real story of real people,
presented in all its pathos, with a most delightful kindly humor
to relieve the situation, everyone who heard her felt that it had
been a lasting inspiration.

BAZAAR DES PROVINCES.
For more than a week Wellesley curiosity has been aroused
by the announcement of a French bazaar to be given at the
Barn under the supervision of L'Alliance Francaise. Monday
afternoon, from three to six, found a miniature French colony
there, prepared to amuse you as well as provide for your wants.
The Barn was more than usually attractive. Instead of a
midway lined with booths, there was an oblong of small
shops, surrounded by broad avenues, and filled with the
most persistent, attractive, Frenchy venders of wares who had
little mercy for the dilettante who played around and tried to
talk French, and still less for the ignorant who spoke only Eng-
lish and German.
The first and most enticing booth was filled with flowers and
flower girls who, while they held a pink carnation against you
for a background, beguiled you with these words. "Elle est
tres belle mademoiselle, tres belle, et la couleur s'accorde avec
" Mais, je n'ai pas de monnaie, " you would respond
"N'importe, mademoiselle, vous pouvez, demain. Et cette
fleur, elle est charmante, tres charmante. "
And so it went around the square, where you wandered on,
assisted if necessary, by Cook's facetious French guides. Madame,
la necromancien had an outside agent to persuade you to enter,
and if enter you did, you might count on a most respectable for-
tune cleverly told Next to the fortune teller's was the roulette
table which was as honest as one could desire. You were sure to
get something if only a baby German stein. Then there was
a counter covered with feminine creations and necessities, col-
lars, cuffs, handkerchiefs, bags and needle cases, all very
The booth where you threw at little darky dolls for chocolate
cigars was popular with Cook's guides, and lairly so with Cook's
tourists. The candy counter adjoining was covered with the
most tempting array of fudge, chocolate peppermints, and nut
The Barn stage made a charming cafe, where you sat with a
friend at a small round table, and were served by a dainty French
maid while you looked down at the gay crowd below. Occa-
sionally, a company of dancing girls in short pink skirts and little
green bodices, fluttered out, attracting much attention. Just
around the corner was a heavily curtained room, containing an
interesting collection of Mrs. Jarley's French wax works.
Everywhere was the sound of gay French chatter, and the
whole scene was one of French gaiety. C. B. Singleton.
LETTER FROM DR. HUME.
An article a few weeks ago in this paper told of the need of
a sterilizing apparatus for Dr. Ruth Hume's hospital in Ah-
mednagar. It is a great pleasure to be able to announce now
that this need has been met by the gift of a Wellesley alumna,
a member of Dr. Bissell's class, and her family.
May I call your attention now to this extract from one of
Dr. Hume's letters describing another need and ask if there
is any suggestion as to how the sum of $3,000 might begin to be
raised to provide this new house of which she speaks?

It does seem as if we must have a house right near the Hospi-
tal. It wastes our time and strength to have to go over there
so far. Often a message is brought to me in the middle of the
day or night that some one is not well. Then I simply have to
use my best judgment whether to send directions or whether
to go over myself. Miss Campbell (the chief nurse) says she
has reached the point of not expecting to come here to the
house without hearing of some pressing need to go back to the

It isdesirable^that^every^one^should take^advantage of the
opportunity to see the collectiorToi Monet picturesnow open at
Copley Hail. Monet, perhaps more than any other living man,
has influenced the art of our day, and though his aims were not
understood at first, he has long since been accepted as one who
sees beauty, and expresses it in a logical and scientific fashion.
He is not to be reproached for what he does not do, but ad-
mired for the accomplishment of what to him is the best worth
He is essentially modern; giving us modern thought in a lan-
guage that is the most natural mode of expression. He has
broken many traditions, but has established a new one to be in
its turn discarded or modified when the time and the man comes.
Perhaps the greatest lesson we can learn from him is that art
is not imitative, but seeks to express a thought or a feeling in
terms of nature.

BLASHFIELD EXHIBITION, ART BUILDING.
The Art Department has been fortunate in securing the draw-
ings and studies, many of them in color, by Mr. Edwin H. Blash-
fieid, which were recently on exhibition at the St. Botolph Club
Mr. Blashfield ranks among the two or three leading artists
in America in interior decoration. His sense of decorative val-
ues and his power of adapting painting to its surroundings is
unsurpassed. One of his best known decorations is the great
work on the interior of the dome of the Congressional Library at
Washington, and another is the decoration of the State House of
Mr. Blashfield is known as a critic as well as an artist. His
book on "Italian Cities," written in collaboration with Mrs.
Blashfield, is a valuable contribution to the qualitative side of
The exhibition is held in the Art Gallery 7 of the Art Building,
and will remain open until the end of the term.
The paintings of which these drawings are the original studies
are to be seen only when in position. Mr. Blashfield rarely ex-
hibits paintings outside of the buildings for which they are
designed. In fact the finishing work is largely done when the
pictures are in place.
A business meeting of the Christian Association was held in
College Hall Chapel, Thursday evening, March 16th. Three new
names were proposed, and the recommendations accepted by
the Association. Miss Kendrick gave a report for the Mission-
ary Committee on the money that has been raised this year.
The pledges have amounted to Si, 439. 54 of which $788.82 has
already been paid. This represents 720 givers or 70 per cent,
of the College with an average of $2 per member. $750 has been
paid for our College Missionary, Dr. Hume, and the remainder
has been expended in various ways, as, for instance, helping Miss
Johnson in her work for girls in Egypt or supporting an orphan
in India. Miss Cook made but a partial report for the committee
to suggest candidates for next year's secretary. No name was
definitely proposed. A request was read by the President from
the East Side New York Settlement House, asking for a possible
worker for the coming year, all applications to be made through
Miss Emerson. The meeting adjourned.

plans for the future. In closing, the Phi Beta Kappa poem,
written for the installation of the chapter at Wellesley. was read
by Miss Hazard. The occasion served to promote the loyalty
of all the Wellesley girls present and was a most delightful re-
newing of college ties.
